What are you listening to right now?

Recommended Posts

Thanks to Rick Beato I find myself listening to "Relaxin' with the Miles Davis Quintet". 

This might not sound particularly momentous to you, but for a man weaned on glam, woken up by punk, shaken by ska and only lately soothed by soul, it is a huge step.

Charles Mingus at Carnegie Hall album: only two tracks including 24 minutes of a pretty much improvised C Jam Blues. Perdido to follow. 

Thanks to Harry Bosch playing it in a book I am reading.

@Baloney Balderdash I'm a fan of early Eno, Taking Tiger Mountain, Warm Jets, etc and I had a few Bauhaus singles bought at the time but I didn't know about their version of this.

Listening to a 6 Music kind-of-documentory .... it's a show of the all time John Peel Festive Fifty... condensed into one hour... a clip of the music and a clip of Peel for each song. Based on a all-time FF he did in his later years.

Lots of good stuff in there (so far.. I'm about halfway) although, as Peel himself laments, a bit predictable........ but here is the opener from the show.

I didn’t know who Sean Hurley was until I looked him up, but I like his playing style and sound on this

No Doubt’s “Rock Steady” album. Some great input from Sly & Robbie and Prince on this one.

Doves - Compulsion. 

I think the bass playing by Jimi Goodwin on this is just brilliant

I accidentally stumbled into the first of two Miles Davis shows at the Plugged Nickel in Chicago just before Xmas '65. I was looking for a blues show, but saw a big line of peeps, and went for it. What a way to get introduced to jazz!

Mastodon - Remission

Made me think of this...... a song featuring the word 'mastodon' (I guess there are not many)... and it has two basses so ideal for basschat 😀

The Stranglers "Dead Los Angeles"

Are you yet to be persuaded by prog?

That's a great story!  I bought Kind of Blue in early 2001 and played it to death. Then started working though Miles' earlier work, then to Bit  ches Brew, and still finding new albums and things.

Off to play Big Fun now 🙂

Rude filter will not let me include the plural of the noun for a female dog in the album title, hence the spa ces.

I flirted with it but the closest I got was rolled by rock and moved by metal, although not for long.

Get in son, my second favourite Stranglers album, what a bass player, what a band, what an album, so much so I struggled to choose my ‘I agree with you’ track...

Came across this from Twitter - different from my usual stuff, but love the two voices.

Nah... Stew's been Seduced by Skiffle.

Surely nobody was ever seduced by skiffle?

Though if older BC members have tales of persuading the lasses, to the strains of "My Old Man's a Dustman" on the Dansette, then I stand corrected. And "Diggin' up my Potatoes" was quite raunchy for the time.
